bought this 85 cj7 w/ 4.2 last year as a semi-basket.
after MUCH wire tracing etc I got it running via a Nutter by-pass and a carb( bbd to bbd) swap.
problem: it runs pretty good when not in gear but has NO power in gear ( barely pulls itself on level ground )
timing is set @8degrees BTDC
kinda new to this so am lost as to where to look next..checked everything I could think of; double gasketed intake/exhaust manifolds as well as plugging all unused vacuum lines etc. and a manual choke is now being used...
helllllp/thanks

Weak fuel pump? Plugged carburator jet(s)? Vacuum advance disconnected maybe? Hard to say...

Good luck,
